Fire Station Field Trip!!

Today was the first Big Field Trip of the school the Fire Station!! This is a new fire house for me as a teacher, but I thought that the crew did a great job with the kids. Although, in six years of orchestrating this type of field trip, it was the first time that I have seen one of my preschoolers cry when the fireman was crawling on the floor. [They quit doing the Darth Vader voice with the mask on because it got a little freaky for the kids]. But this was such good practice in case they ever have to be rescued or helped--they know someone will look for them and that they can trust some of our most valuable community helpers--the Fire Department!

Everyone had the opportunity to sit in the driver's seat of the big engine. We had a couple that weren't "burning" to get up there (and that's OK), but we had quite a few excited little ones.

Sunshine Preschool took on a whole new meaning today. The light was so bright that they had to wear "shades"!!

A few more takes...........

We are having gorgeous Fall weather and what a great day it was to go on a preschool field trip to the local Fire Station! Actually, the weather might have been a little TOO nice when you look at the pictures. I have to say, slightly cloudy and overcast is the perfect picture-taking weather. But anywhooooo--the kids seemed to have had a great time and made some wonderful memories for them!!
Homework: Don't forget to talk in your families about 2 different exits from your home and a meeting spot in case of a fire.
**Tuesday we have a brand-new topic that I've never done in preschool before: PIRATES. I'm very excited and I can't wait to see what kind of booty we score. It's going to be quite an adventure. Arr Mateys!!
